Producing more wine than any other U.S. State, California is a common destination for wine tourists and wine-tasting venues. A great alternative to getting a designated driver for your wine-tour experience could be a reserving luxury transportation and be chauffeured in style to and from various wine-tasting venues. Although Northern California with its world-famous Napa- and Sonoma Valleys might be the first destination that comes to mind for many considering a wine-tour in California. But do you really have to leave the Los Angeles area? Some of the most unsoiled and scenic wine country is in fact found in Southern California. Besides great wine-tasting venues in the Malibu Canyons and Temecula Valley, the Santa Barbara region has become an emerging destination in recent times. At Blackhawk Limousine & Transportation we have offered customized, award-winning Santa Barbara wine tours for more than twenty years. The wineries and vineyards of Santa Barbara County offer a genuine wine-tour location, with far less tourists, traffic and crowds, compared to its counterparts in for example Northern California’s Napa Valley. For more information about our Santa Barbara wine tasting offers, keep reading and we will expand on a few of our best selling wine tours.
Firstly, no article on Santa Barbara wine tours is complete without a significant portion about the gorgeous Santa Ynez Valley. Located in the heart of Santa Barbara County, the Santa Ynez area has become one of the world’s most famous wine regions. The more than 2,200 acres of wine country found here is surrounded by oak trees, green hills and some of the most beautiful natural landscapes in the state. Maybe particularly after the movie Sideways was released in 2004, the interest in our Santa Ynez wine tours have exploded. Maybe mostly known for its great Pinot Noir, this particular valley has made more award-winning wines than any other place in Southern California. Fun small towns such as Los Olivos have a charming appeal with numerous wineries, boutiques and smaller cafes. The wineries here range from cozy wine tasting rooms in historic buildings to rather spacious buildings surrounded by green vineyards. And maybe best of all, taking a luxurious Santa Barbara limo tour through the wine country lets you sit back, relax, sample wine, all while taking in the beauty of the vineyards without worrying about driving. Having been the top rated Santa Barbara limo service now for more than twenty years, Blackhawk Limousine & Transportation is happy to provide a price-match-guarantee on all wine tours, so you can be sure you not only ride with the best service, but also for the lowest price available.
Besides our Santa Ynez wine tours, another popular Santa Barbara wine tasting destination is the Santa Maria Valley. These 7,500 acres of vineyards are among the oldest wine regions in the state. The region is maybe particularly known for its great Chardonnay and Pinot Noirs, but there are now more than twenty wine varietals grown in the valley, which makes it an easy task to find a great wine. The Santa Maria Valley, being rather larger and more spread out than the Santa Ynez Valley, offer tons of selections in all types of wineries and vineyards. Certain venues here – such as the Star Lane Winery, Pali Wine Company and Flying Goat Cellars – are located less than twenty minutes from the Santa Ynez Valley in the small town of Lompoc. These wine-tasting venues can therefore easily be visited on trip to Santa Ynez.
